Motherhood is filled with magical little moments that bring you immense joy.

As motherhood is the greatest and most natural God-given gift for women for posterity, it would seem that the birth and rearing of children, in the way which to us seems most ideal, would be the most satisfying and the most rewarding career for a woman.

  • A Mother is a woman who gives birth to a child or children and looks after their welfare, throughout life. She has a lifelong commitment of love, devotion and caring towards her children, that too without any prerequisites or conditions. This is the beauty of a mother – her love and sacrifice knows no bounds.

I had no idea how selfish I was until I became a mother. My entire life revolved around myself and then in an instant it was about someone else entirely. It has made me a better person in so many ways.

The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your child.

Motherhood has taught me the meaning of living in the moment and being at peace.

Along with the self-confidence that motherhood has brought me, there has also come the awareness that I do not exist for the purpose of making everyone happy. Some people aren’t going to like me and will disagree with my decisions and that’s OK. At the end of the day, I have to choose what is important to me and my family. Becoming a mother and having the responsibility of other people’s little lives thrust upon me has created a valuable perspective of life and what truly matters. My family is what truly matters.
